The network camera has a built in webpage which has a plugin that loads 
if you use a microsoft web browser, and that plugin plays the mpeg4 
video with extremely low latency. So I know that the camera is sending 
the data out quickly. (ha ha it probably doesn't have enough memory to 
do it any other way)

I have not tried a gstreamer app yet. Do I need to?
Any app that is trying to play a smooth video is going to buffer enough 
to not run out of frames.
That's why I want to modify ffmpeg to play each frame as soon as it arrives.
